FO: Ribbed Lace Bolero

Ribbed Lace Bolero

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that it took me close to a year to finish this one. That is what comes of juggling so many projects at once. Now that it is finished, I can understand why this is such a popular pattern. Fun and easy construction: it is basically a rectangle that turns into a bolero with the addition of two seams. Universally flattering: the finished garment is very wearable, looks good on a lot of body types and goes well with simple t-shirts and tanks.

  2. That looks fantastic on you, I really love the way the sleeves sit, and it looks amazing over that coral-coloured shirt you've layered it with.

  6. I'm glad I got to see the flat piece in an earlier post, so I could see the transformation with the seam, and then a pic with you wearing it. It looks great and I like the color you chose.

  10. Your profile made me laugh, since my daughters and I lurve all things Jane Austen or BBC. :)
    Let me know if you'd like to do a swap like I did with Mary (Marushka) sometime. They are a wonderful way to make new friends with kindred spirits!!
